COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nasce da un “pensiero perverso” di Teo e da anni di ricerca. Una birra ad alta fermentazione che ha subito un processo di macro ossidazione e una maturazione in botti di rovere che le donano profumi di datteri, caramello e un delicato ricordo di legno. Al bicchiere si presenta priva di gasatura e schiuma con note di colore bruno con riflessi ramati

Xyauyù Barrel is the result of a “wicked idea” of Teo’s and years of research. It is a top-fermented beer which has gone through macrooxidation and has been aged in oak rum barrels to give it scents of dates, caramel and a delicate wooden note. When poured, it has no head and no gas; it has a dark color with copper nuances.

Honey, dates, figs,caramel plus amazing thickness & smoothness.More of a Madera wine than a beer.No carbonation whatsoever. Luv vanilla fin

My god it is delicious. Raisin syrup with no carbonation. Beautiful barrel notes (both in the aroma and in taste) alcohol balance is on the spot (you feel it in a pleasant way). BW to be praised.

Lore (2746) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 4, 2017
Opalescent reddish-brown colour, practically no head at all; aroma of smoked ham or cheese, tobacco, raisins, burnt sugar syrup, herbal liqueur notes, dessert white wine and some wine cellary- earthy notes; taste of a liqueur wine with smoked notes; ok this has nothing beer-ish and seems to be much more like a weird smoked white wine liqueur than a beer, but anyway, I like it very much!

GhostS (367) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 27, 2017
Aromă puternică, multă caramelă și zahăr ușor ars, puțină ciocolată, fructe în rom, miere cu divin, ceva nuanțe de vin alb maturat dulce și cu mult alcool. Gust puternic, foarte dulce și concentrat, cu multă caramelă și ceva ciocolată, fructe în sirop caramelizat, rom. Foarte bună.

Sample, BOTTLE 50 CL. Vintage 2010. Hazy deep red, no head. Super rich sherry like aroma, oxidized, rich dark dried sweet cherries, light chocolate and vanilla. The taste is surprisingly sweet, or rather chocolaty, the dried fruity is drowned in the chocolaty vanilla good aged spirit, warming alcohol. Not much of that oxidized notes as in the basic Xyauyù. Excellent.

BlazerT (1105) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUN 24, 2017
Brownish with tiny head. Very complex heavy malty profile - lots of caramel, lightly tobacco and woody, lightly oaky. Moderate notes of dark, riped fruits. Nice organic sweet aromas, which mainly comes from rum barrels and what’s more are not really annoying. Taste is heavy sweet, override fruits, delicious. In general perfect combination of flavors and aromas, the mastery of oxidation and maturation process.

Grumbo (2947) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2017
From the bottle at Open Baladin, Roma. Pours mid to dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of rich molasses, fruit, dates, toffee, malt, oak cask and rum cake. Quite high sweetness, minimal bitterness. Medium to full body, sticky texture, soft to flat carbonation. Beautiful.

heman (1003) - Tychy, POLAND - JUN 20, 2017
Piwo brunatne, piany brak. Aromat słodki, suszone owoce (rodzynki, daktyle), przyjemny karmel, gładki, trochę krówkowy. W tle nuty wanilii i kokosa. W smaku bardzo pełen, słodkie, likierowe. karmel, melasa, suszone owoce w cukrze, wanilia i kokos w posmaku, do tego finisz kojarzący się z rumem. Genialne!

No head, no co2. Cane sugar, oxidation, very sweet, really great. Perfectly hidden alcohol

4.6
lello4ever (990) - ITALY - JUN 15, 2017
Versione 2013. Si presenta come un puro liquore, ambra marrone senza schiuma. Al naso eccezionale Aroma di caramello, vinosa, evidente linvecchiamento. Superba al palato con una grande complessità di dark fruits, caramello, dolce e rotonda seppur non impegnativa, marsala, zibibbo, porto. Carbonazione assente, alcol non fastidioso, consistenza oleosa. Da degustazione a sorsi per la sua grandezza.
